Bryan Vargas & Ya Esta / Bio

Bryan Vargas & Ya Está invoke the spirits with the rumble of drums and the screams of distorted guitars. African devotional songs warp into funky mambo grooves as their energetic sets transform local clubs into dancehalls.

Their debut CD, Afro Latino Soul is a favorite on indie radio and their shows are required listening for New York's World Music fans. Featuring former members of Antibalas, BV & YE are the past, present and future of NY's Latin music scene.

"... if you believe that great music begins at a popular level, then you should listen to Bryan Vargas & Ya Está," - NY Newsday

"Ya Esta brought me back to my naked pagan roots," - Un Chin Magazine
